Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Because the two holes in the middle are 35mm apart I believe a Takahashi clamshell could be mounted on this. Because the holes are smooth pass through, how could a Talk clamshell be mounted?
I'm curious about the design here. Are these compatible with the iOptron SmartEQ mount?
I'm looking to pair the Lunt 50mm solar scope to the iOptron SmartEQ mount. Will this mounting plate work?
